“I am Ron Fredericks, a loving family man, and creative new media technology leader focused on social networking and business innovation at LectureMaker LLC. I co-founded LectureMaker and sponsored the Blue Cube Toastmasters club because I believe public communication is the solution to better family life and the under-utilized catalyst to rebuilding our global economy.“
Ron Fredericks studied Biophysics at UC Berkeley for 12 years. He demonstrated his leadership skills by productizing his optics patent in quantitative biochemistry as a key element to launching a biophysics corporation.
He gave back to his community by managing over 800 public speeches by software technologists and entrepreneurs as the editor of the Software Developer Forum (sdforum.org). He later went on to manage over 1000 global partnerships that produced new software tools, and their related marketing, sales, and support strategies, for the global device manufacturing industry. Ron has won sales and marketing awards for his management of interactive web sites that helped automate many of these partnerships for Intel and then again at Motorola. He has traveled extensively as a software technology leader and technical editor for the Digital Equipment Corporation’s User Society (DECUS) – one of the first global open-source software ecosystems.
Ron Fredericks used the social engagements in his technology career to become a leader in business video Internet broadcasting. Ron found his passion for video as a communications medium from Pacific Data Images during their demonstration of their morphing visual effects on Michael Jackson’s “Black or White” music video in 1991. From that day forward he started building his own video communication techniques and vendor relationships.
Today LectureMaker’s Sunnyvale video studio is the first business video studio in the Bay Area to offer lecture development support, and real-time lecture broadcasting to the Internet in true High-Definition (HD) format.
